Heddon Dowagiac High Forehead Minnows

The 1905 Heddon high forehead 100 has several forms.  It varied in the shape and position of the cup relative to the eyes and where the gill marks were placed.  The other variables are the shape of the tail which can be seen to vary in taper.  The lures shown here could vary in date by a year either way form 1905, but all are high forehead, brass hardware, two belly weights, sweeping gill marks and belong in a wood box.
